  • ZigDrive 6: Bengaluru to Avalabetta on Sunday, June 19, 2016

    Attention all you roadies in Bengaluru! ZigDrive 6 takes you to a lovely hilltop just 85 km out of Bengaluru, a spot called Avalabetta that's not as well-known as Nandi Hills, making it the perfect spot for you to take your cars and bikes out for a long drive on a Sunday morning. The rains are here and that will make this drive even more interesting.

    When: Sunday, June 19, 2016
    Where to: Avalabetta
    Meeting point: Hebbal, Service Lane opposite Esteem Mall
    Assembly time: 7.00 am
    Departure time: 7.15 am
    Drive distance (one way): 90 km (Round trip of 180 km)

    Drive Details:
    We will be driving up to Avalabetta and back with a stop for breakfast being organized enroute. You are free to carry some snacks and water as well in your individual cars. The road we will take is NH7, the highway to Hyderabad, turning off at Peresandra towards Avalabetta. You will have to pay toll at the airport toll gate (Rs. 120 round trip toll). Driving time is expected to be about 1 hour and 40 minutes, but do factor in a 45 minute halt before that for breakfast. There is a small guest house at the top, in front of which is ample parking. For better views, you will need to walk up the hillside for about half a km.

    ‚ÄčLocal coordinators in Bengaluru for this ZigDrive are Arjun and Ivee. Tag them for any help with coordination.

    Please RSVP in the posts below and share among interested friends. Some photos, courtesy Arjun who took the trouble to recce the spot this weekend. Big shout out to him!

                Driving 2200 km to drive 90 km with the folks in Bengaluru and then driving back another 2200 km. That's close to a 4,500 km round trip! What to say, the boys, they love driving
